Late last month, Samsung announced an LTE-A-powered Galaxy S4 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor for Korea's SK Telecom network. The benchmarks – along with the speedtests – were mind-boggling, but it was extremely unclear whether the rest of the world would ever get a taste of everything this new GS4 has to offer. Thanks to a new leak over at AllAboutSamsung.de (and confirmed by SamMobile's sources), we now have strong reason to think that an international version, model number i9506, is on its way.

The first look at the i9506 comes to us via some leaked screenshots of an AnTuTu benchmark, which essentially confirms the devices innards: Qualcomm's MSM 8974 CPU – better known as the Snapdragon 800. At this point the inclusion of LTE-A is anything but concrete, though the existence of a virtually identical device in Korea strongly suggests it.

At this point, we're anticipated an IFA announcement, which takes place September 6-11 in Berlin, Germany.
